Florian, Belgium

Nous avons été totalement satisfait de la prestation.​ ​ Quelques coups de coeurs évidemment, notamment l’hotel Kau Lodge à Puerto Natales, vraiment magique, ainsi que l’hosteria Pehoe. L’hôtel à Punta Arenas était bien, seul bémol, le petit déjeuner.​ ​ Notre chauffeur Edouardo a été vraiment parfait, très gentil, souriant, c’était un vrai plaisir d’être avec lui malgré quelques difficultés de compréhension linguistique!!​ ​ Par ailleurs, notre expérience sur le glacier Grey va rester inoubliable d’autant que les explications de Mickey qui parle français ont été très instructives et passionnantes.​ ​ La navigation sur le détroit de magellan ainsi que la visites des pingouins et loup de mers était très bien, nous avons la chance de notre coté concernant la météo!!​ ​ Concernant votre équipe, elle a été très réactive, et a répondu à nos demandes au mieux malgré la difficulté à trouvé un parcours sur le W le plus optimal. Nous sommes très enchantés et recommanderions votre agence à quiconque.​ ​ L’accueil et les repas au refuge Grey n’ont cependant pas été inoubliable! Le refuge Torre Norte à quant à lui était très bien.​ ​ Encore un grand merci, nous avons adoré notre séjour!!​ Read more

Michèle P., France

Je reviens de ce voyage au Chili, enchantée, les yeux pleins de couleurs magnifiques.​ ​ J’ai aussi pris confiance en moi à faire ce voyage seule, enfin… pas vraiment seule! grâce à votre magnifique aide et organisation!​ ​ Je trouve que j’ai été extrêmement bien écoutée d’abord sur ce que je désirais faire.​​ La proposition était très personnalisée et me correspondait bien.​ Plusieurs solutions ont été ensuite offertes pour baisser le prix que je trouvais trop élevé.​ Chaque fois le programme a été rapidement modifié en fonction de mes demandes.​ ​ Durant le voyage, le suivi a été très attentif pour m’envoyer des confirmations, ou des clarifications. Excellente réactivité à mes demandes de dernière minute qui ont été parfaitement arrangées.​ ​ Avec mes plus cordiales salutations.​ Read more
